A visit to the Johnny Deutsch’s Pizza on the first Saturday of every month is one of the perks of attending the National Pizza Day.
For the past decade, the pizza chain has been hosting a pizza festival every November to commemorate its 50th anniversary.
The event is typically held at the company’s downtown Chicago location, and tickets are usually $15.
John Deutsch says he wants to bring more people in Chicago to the pizza festival this year, but he’s not sure how.
“I’m not sure we can have a full year of pizza, so we’re looking to do a little bit of a smaller event,” he said.
“The last time we did it was the summer of 2016.
I would love to do it again this year.”

In addition to the national event, John Deberts has organized several smaller events around the country.
He said he hopes to bring back the event in Chicago for the next few years.
“We’re really looking forward to it,” he told USA TODAY NETWORK-Wisconsin.
“I’ve been thinking about doing it for quite a while.”

JohnDeutsch said he expects the event to draw some people from out of town.
“[It’s] really exciting,” he added.
“You’re not going to get a whole lot of people, but they’re going to be excited.
They’ll see a new restaurant and they’ll say, ‘Wow, it’s good, I’ve been wanting to go to John Deuches.'”
